Can I please have input on this dx. Would it be coded 250.40, 583.81 with the 791.0? or would you bother with adding the 791.0?:

Diabetic nephropathy is characterized by increased urinary albumin excretion and loss of renal function. Increased urinary albumin (proteinuria) is a key component of this disease, so you wouldn't need to code 791.0.
